Deadline for paid Indiana House internships nearing

Local college students and recent graduates may apply online for internships at the Indiana Statehouse through Oct. 31.

The House of Representatives offers paid spring internships to college sophomores, juniors, seniors, graduate students and recent graduates of all majors. Interns will work at the Statehouse in Indianapolis for the duration of the 2022 legislative session lasting January through mid-March.

“Whether you’re interested in communicating directly with constituents or the media or you enjoy conducting in-depth research, there is something for everyone in our internship program,” state District 69 Rep. Jim Lucas, R-Seymour, said in a news release.

Interns work full time from 8:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday. Spring semester internships are available in several departments working with House Republicans.

Positions are available in the legislative operations department, where interns work directly with constituents and help track legislative committee activity. The communications department is looking for interns to help write news releases and work with social media campaigns, graphic design and audio/video production. The policy department is in need of interns to help research, track and analyze legislation.

Interns receive biweekly compensation of $750, free parking, career and professional development support and enrollment access to an Indiana government class. They also can earn academic credit through their college or university and are eligible to apply for a $3,000 scholarship to use toward undergraduate and graduate expenses.
